About this property

  • Situated within the Conservation Area in the highly desirable village of Evenlode, Friars Garth is an extremely stylish detached property with superbly presented accommodation.

    The property is believed to date from the 19th century and was most recently refurbished in 2012 by the current owners. The sitting room is comprised of two zones, one centred around a handsome stone fireplace and the other featuring attractive faux bookcases with disguised doors leading to a utility room and staircase rising to an en suite bedroom. A door from the sitting room opens to a hallway where steps lead to a beautifully appointed bespoke kitchen which is fitted with an excellent range of units and a large island unit. There is plenty of room for a large table and chairs. Completing the ground floor is a cloakroom. There are three well-proportioned double bedrooms, all of which have luxurious en suites.

    A particular feature of the property is the fabulous detached annexe. At the centre is the party barn comprising a bespoke kitchen sitting/dining room. At either end of the annexe is an en suite bedroom. Adjoining the party barn is a paved terrace and all-weather stone pizza oven built by a specialist firm from Puglia with stone entertaining bar. There is a detached home office which could be used as a games room or den if so desired.

    The enclosed gardens are mature and mainly laid to lawn with specimen trees and shrubs. Paved terraces provide a choice of places to enjoy the sunshine and summer dining. A quirky aspect of the gardens is the al fresco copper bath and shower. There is a garage and a substantial gravelled area provides ample parking for several vehicles.
